Free Introduction to the News event for scientists and medical professionals

The Science Media Centre are holding another Introduction to the News Media event aimed at scieintists and doctors with limited media experience. COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of scientists engaging with the media. Public understanding of the nature of the virus and the behaviours needed to minimise risk is essential for saving lives. It’s paramount that these topics are communicated correctly and that evidence has its say. We have some excellent science and health journalists in the UK, but the pandemic will never be covered as accurately as we want it to be without the direct involvement of the experts themselves. Introduction to the News Media is a seminar devised over ten years ago by the Science Media Centre aimed at persuading the best scientists of the case for engaging with the media. We do this through a number of things: Their next Introduction to the News Media event on Thursday 1st October is a special event focused exclusively on COVID-19 and will be held online from 14:00– 17:00. It’s a hugely informative, entertaining and popular afternoon. And it’s FREE. Register your interest Find out more
